The PILS Project Conference 7th June 2018

The PILS Project’s conference took place on 7th June 2018 at The Hilton Hotel, Belfast.  PILS Board and staff sincerely thank the Lord Chief Justice Sir Declan Morgan for the opening address.  A copy of the Lord Chief Justice’s speech can be accessed on the conference page of our website,
PILS also thank Martin O’Brien, Ciarán Mac Giolla Bhéin, Sarah Corrigan and Ciarán Moynagh for their contributions.  Ciarán Moynagh’s address is also available on our website conference page.
A very special word of appreciation to our keynote speaker, Mr Edwin Cameron, Justice of the Constitutional Court of South Africa. His speech was emotive and inspiring.  The PILS Project are extremely grateful to The Detail’s Steven McCaffery for his video interview of Justice Cameron, which was aptly described by one twitter user as a ‘cracking piece of journalism’.  PILS Board and staff wholeheartedly agree! The video interview and accompanying article can be accessed here.  Feel free to share on social media.
It is expected that Mr Justice Cameron will provide a hand written copy of his speech shortly and this too will be uploaded to our website.
Finally thank you to everyone who attended the conference and took the time to provide feedback.  Hopefully you enjoyed it as much as we did!
